in reply to AIM Offline Messaging Bot

Hi. I was just wondering if it is possible to check if someone is online. For example if someone isn't on your buddy list and you just want to see if they are on AIM before you send them an IM. I don't see a specific example of it anywhere in the source. Is the only way to add them to the buddy list and wait for AIM to send you status info on them, or can you do it 'on the fly'? Thanks.

    you right click on someone that is already on your buddylist, goto their info, then type in the persons s/n you are seeking to whether they are online or not and then click ok
      u think this'll really work?

      Considered by jdporter: "delete: zero content. Or at least edit title. Current title is single word and completely irrelevant to the p"
      Unconsidered by davido: Final vote (keep/edit/delete) was 3/7/22: Too many 'keep' and 'edit' votes blocked reaping. Unclear consensus on retitling.
